    In August of 2014, ECHO established the Latin America/Caribbean Regional Impact Team. The goals of this team are to:

    • Make appropriate technical information more widely available among persons and organizations who serve to alleviate hunger and improve the lives of small-scale farmers.
    • Increase the awareness of regionally important crops, animal breeds and farming systems by seeking out, sharing and promoting effective indigenous innovations related to food sufficiency and poverty alleviation.
    • Increase the availability of seeds of select regionally important crops among development workers, encourage regional seed saving and sharing and determine the availability of other significant plant material.
    • Encourage networking and information sharing among development workers in each region.

    ECHOcommunity成員聚光:Tuntun與Thaung Si先生 2020-04-08

    Patrick Trail報告摘錄 – ECHO亞洲

    我與Tuntun先生走在緬甸鄉下的農場,當他自豪地向我展示他所制作并用于果樹苗盆栽混合土的生物炭時,我情不自禁地笑了。他現在不再燃燒農場的有機廢物,而是將其變為可用于生產更多農作物的寶貴資源,而非通過煙霧將碳排放到大氣中。

    大約一年前,Tuntun先生在PyinOo參加了一個種子保存講習班,在其中一個實踐操作課上學習如何制作生物炭。他馬上回家自己嘗試,而且非常成功。Tuntun先生現在甚至主持了一個Facebook專頁,與其他講緬甸語的農民分享耕作技術,講解生物炭等實踐技術!

    Thaung Si and TunTun

    Thaung Si(左)和Tuntun(右)在炫耀刀豆種子,它們源自ECHO亞洲種子庫,現在栽培以供應緬甸種子庫。

    這里發生的這么多事情都源自于我們在這個地區的主要合作伙伴,Thaung Si先生。作為ECHO亞洲長期的朋友及合作伙伴,Thaung Si在多個場合與我們一起參與培訓活動,我們也向他學到了很多東西。三年前,他在傈僳族浸信會神學院創建了一個社區種子庫。通過種子庫,他教授學生農業和園藝實踐,播種許多不同類型的種子,從而對許多人的生活產生了重大影響。正是在這里,Tuntun先生和近一百位當地其他農民及參與人員在去年接受了生物炭及其它技術培訓,而Thaung Si則定期予以跟進。

    ECHO社區在整個地區及世界各地都有許多像Thaunag Si 這樣盡職盡責的合作伙伴。這些合作伙伴接受充分培訓后,便能對更多人進行培訓!

    關于 Latin America / Caribbean

    Latin America and the Caribbean is a region of deep contrasts. Over the past two decades there has been substantial social and economic growth, enabling some to make the leap from poverty and vulnerability to stability and relative middle class comfort. Infrastructure in most large cities is modern with reliable transportation systems connecting centers of trade. The landscape is dotted with shopping centers that host well known American businesses.

    However, beginning at the edges of the modern cities one can see the acute symptoms of a widespread and destructive force; the crushing weight of hopelessness in the rural villages that are home to nearly half of the region’s population. Every year hundreds of rural families abandon farming as their traditional survival strategies are no longer sufficient to support even a meager existence.

    47 million people in the region suffer from hunger and malnutrition, mainly women and children.
